♪ ♪ >> i just called president obama to congratulate him. >> i congratulated him and paul ryan on a hard-fought campaign. >> i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. >> we are an american family, and we rise or fall together. the task of perfecting our union moving forward. >> tonight, we are celebrating the year in the news, the winners, the losers, the person of the year. and we will hand out the donald trump award. all right, let's start with the most valuable player of 2012, alex wagner. >> in my book, it is david, you saw the beginnings, with dean, and obama. >> krystal? the most valuable player? >> probably to waiter who placed the camera at the mitt romney fundraiser and captured the 47% comments, which i think showed a lot of people their concerns about mitt romney and the fact he really was not there for all of america. that he didn't understand the problems that average americans were facing. >> let's listen to that little moment of video history. the 47%. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president, there are 47% of people who are
overtake him is paul ryan. there's really no indication that paul ryan wants to go against john boehner. in fact, from all the reporting that we've done, john boehner and paul ryan seem pretty close, even though they have differed on some things. it seems orchestrated, to be honest, and to give paul ryan potentially a chance later on maybe to be speaker when john boehner leaves. >> one more question for kristen. what happens to other issues like gun control and immigration? which one of those in particular would the president most likely top his agenda with? >> well, i think gun control right now certainly has been taking up the majority of the president's focus in light of the tragedy in connecticut, so what's interesting is several weeks ago we would have said immigration, but gun control has certainly moved up to the forefront. i think immigration is still going to be a big issue on president obama's policy agenda in the new year, but i do think gun control is going to be right up there with immigration. melissa? >> kristen, thank you. >> what do you think? >> i really think immigrat
states in an exchange he had with paul ryan back in 2010 said the last thing you want to do when the economy is struggling to sort of gain ground is to raise taxes and he said to cut spending. i don't agree with him necessarily on the spending although i would have done it more gradually. but the president of the united states made the case i thought rather convincingly you don't want to raise taxes because in his words it would kill jobs and hurt businesses. that president who made that argument then certainly seems to believe something pretty close to the opposite now. adam: doug, you get the last word. are we going off the cliff or not? >> we are going off the cliff. it is large, the budget control act of 2011. it is too late but i think future taxes, if we get spending under control, future taxes will be discounted lower because we'll have a better budget backdrop. adam: sounds like we're going to revisit this entire issue after the first of the year and when the new congress gets in place. steve hayes, jeffrey cleveland, doug cote tee, thanks for joining us on melissa franci
and proposed by paul ryan and his budget. >> the whole reason this happened is the fiscal cliff that we are facing the fiscal cliff was supposedly because what the two sides couldn't agree to in 2011 they would make it so horrible that they would have to do something. now, they can't do anything big. we are not even sure tonight whether it would be something small to get through the fiscal cliff. >> sean: i think the president ought to fly to hawaii to play rounds 108, 109, 110. bill cunningham is a scratch golfer. i don't think he has played that many rounds in a year, have you? >> sean hannity we have is gone over the cliff. we are in the gully. $16.4 trillion of debt on top of us and obama says let's add 4 or are 5 trillion more. we have gone over the cliff already. >> sean: thank you both on what we are are calling america on the brink. the fiscal cliff battle continues right up to the very end. when we come back, former governor bill richardson will attempt to explain where president obama's leadership has been on the fiscal cliff showdown. a hannity one on one shootout and then se
moment of his campaign. the selection of congressman paul ryan, excited conservatives in a way romney himself had not. how many moments are there in an hour and a half, the president lost all of them in the first debate. the pictures tell the story of a man who phoned it in, panicking his supporters, and providing an open ing for romney. and finally, the top three moments of the election best described as history-making politics. a supreme court decision upholding the constitutionality of obama care. and if that doesn't strike you as political, consider what would have happened on the campaign trail if the high court had struck down the president's signature first term achievement. >> at a certain point i've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same sex couples should be able to get married. >> reporter: the first president to endorse same sex marriage was a daily double moment, good politics aimed at an activist wing of his party base and most certainly history. and finally, the number one political moment of the year is eas
-simpson. the president didn't support it. paul ryan didn't support it. it didn't have the kind of bipartisan consensus we needed. gotten us $4 in spending cuts for one dollar in revenue increase. bottom line we lack common purpose as a nation. both parties i believe are to be blamed. gregg, as we go to the end of the year and the christmas season i would hope we would have a common purpose, put partisanship aside and say how do we put the nation first? sadly, no one is doing that. gregg: it is interesting what doug just said, terry. i want you to react to that. he says both sides will get blamed. why is it the polls show only republicans really get the blame? >> well the president has the bully pulpit. he has the ability to go out and have campaign speeches and control the national debate in a way that the house republicans simply don't have. the president has the ability to shape the opinions that are being made about, and how the news is being covered. so he has a huge advantage and he has demonstrated time and again to demonstrate campaign tactics over the nuts and bolts of policy and debate here in w
if someone to his right, that caucus shrinks more. >> clayton: and some-- >> you've heard paul ryan and eric cantor. >> clayton: he was speaking and saying no, those won't be the individuals up. >> dave: i don't think we'll see that. >> clayton: fascinating. >> juliet: we'll see some severe weather, wild weather into the northeast right now. and people are still having last week's snow. as you can see, the plows are sitting by, getting ready to get out there, and throwing the salt on the ground and we're going to go to maria molina right now for an update on what's happening, maria? >> hey, good morning. good to see you. good morning, everyone, we have another snowstorm coming into the northeast just after on thursday 20 inches of snow across places of parts of upstate new york and new england and hit with that storm and another round. the good news for the system it's not forecasted to be anywhereas strong as last one was. it will be in later this morning and out by later this evening and through tonight. across portions of the southeast we have been dealing with some areas of heavy rain an
